development 



programs 
and 
sites 



This Directory is an attempt to 
provide an extensive list of sources 
for environmental education assis- 
tance. It is by no means exhaustive 
and should be used as a guide in 
seeking help in initiating local 
programs of environmental educa- 
tion awareness. 

The forms of assistance include 
technical aid, monetary grants, 
community programs, publications, 
curriculum planning, audio-visual 
aids and many others. 

Most of the Federal agencies and a 
considerable number of the non- 
government agencies listed operate 
regional or local offices. A quick 
check through the telephone book 
in your area will probably save 
valuable time and effort in finding 
an agency's location. 



This Directory consists of four 
sections: 

I - Federal Assistance 

(US Government agencies) 

II - Local Assistance 

(US Department of Health, 
Education and Welfare 
funded local projects) 

III - Private Assistance 

(Trade associations and 
other organizations) 

IV - Miscellaneous Assistance 

(Films, books, universities 
and other directories) 



Additional information and as- 
sistance may be obtained by 
contacting the Division of State 
and Private Assistance, Nationa 
Park Service, US Department of 
the Interior, Washington, D.C. 
20240.
